Mary’s Cancer Kiddies were absolutely delighted to have the Red Nose Foundation perform at Dharmais Hospital. Below is a snippet from their February monthly newsletter.


 


As part of commemorations for International Childhood Cancer Day, Red Nose Foundation was invited by Mary’s Cancer Kiddies, a cancer care organization, to perform at Dharmais Hospital – National Cancer Center to the kids who receive treatment.

Artistic Director Dedi along with circus teachers Wawan and April performed circus tricks and clowning to entertain the kids and staff who come to the show. “While there are over 30 kids in this hospital, unfortunately only these 6 are fit enough to leave their rooms and join us,” mentioned Inge, a volunteer of Mary’s Cancer Kiddies.

At the end of the show, the kids tried basic circus skills in a workshop and then sang nursery rhymes together with Red Nose team, their parents and medical staff.

Despite their physical condition and the IV tubes attached to their hands, the 6 kids were excited to learn the circus tricks that we showed them. Some of them could keep a plate spinning on their fingers, which brought them great joy!
